It's not too late for you to build a pair of sexy summertime legs! And yes it's mainly because, although late June, it doesn't seem that British summer has started yet. But whilst we patiently wait let's all do something useful and get to work shaping up our bodies ready to bare all on those upcoming 2.5 days of hot sun!
In last week's post, I alluded to the fact that I had signed up to do a 10k run. In fact, I more than alluded to it - I outright stated it. And I'm ashamed to say that it wasn't strictly true. In fact, what I had done is challenge the editor of a well-known running magazine to a race. I mean, you can probably see the flawed logic already.
Take a look in any mainstream gym, and you'll find the most popular exercise at any given time to be the bicep curl. It's the exercise of choice for insecure guys trying to blow up their arms. And whilst bicep curls do have their place, it's definitely not the most important exercise if you want bigger arms.
This is probably the question I got asked the most. In this day and age everyone has a basic understanding about the importance and need to take some regular exercise. However if this involves more than walking the dog then there is stuff to know and learn IF you want to do things properly and get benefit.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a fantastic way to burn calories. For those of you who have absolutely no idea what HIIT is, it's a series of repeated bouts of high intensity exercise (usually performed for 30-90 seconds) split with short rest periods (usually around 10-30 seconds). It's usually either in sprint intervals or a circuit style workout.
